“My Grandma made these for us for what she called tea, but we called supper. How high the crust gets depends on how much you beat the eggs. Serve with salad and crusty bread, if desired.”

As for this recipe, try cooking your sausages directly in the pan at the 400 degree oven. When they are half baked, and the pan is sizzling hot, pour your Yorkshire batter over the top and let them finish baking. DO NOT open the oven. They will puff up beautifully. It also helps to make your batter in advance and let it sit mixed on the counter at room tempertaure to ensure a BIG puff.



Try baking your sausage until it is halfway cooked in your pan in the hot oven. Then, when the grease is smoking hot, pour in your batter. The crust does not get high depending on how you beat your eggs. The crust gets high if #1 you leave your batter out on the counter for at least 30 minutes and #2 if you pour it into a very hot, sizzling dish with fat that is smoking hot on the bottom. I'd increase the temperature of the oven to 425 degrees and make sure you use a metal pan, not glass. Overall, this is a good, basic recipe for TITH and keep in mind that it is a British dish, which is historically not overly spicy or flavorful. This is comfort food at its best. Cover it with a nice brown gravy, some mashed potatoes, peas and carmelized onions. Delicious.



I make this all the time and love it. For my personal tastes though I usually add some chopped herbs like basil, rosemary, thyme and oregano or sometimes a little bit of cumin or just some dill. Overall though it's a fantastic recipe and I like how easy it is that I can whip it up in a few minutes minus.
